Atlanta Braves outfielders B.J. and Justin Upton hit back-to-back home runs in Tuesday night’s 10-2 over the Colorado Rockies, becoming the first bother duo in 75 years to accomplish the feat.
On September 15, 1938 Paul and Lloyd Waner, of the Pittsburgh Pirates, hit back-to-back homers.
Justin Upton, who was acquired in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks during the offseason, is hitting a .307, with 11 home runs, and 16 RBI’s this year, while brother B.J. who signed with the Braves as a free agent, is hitting a .160, with three homers, and six RBI’s.
